Animal Magnetism Songs Ranked

Animal Magnetism is the seventh studio album by German rock band Scorpions, released in 1980. The RIAA certified the record as Gold on 8 March 1984, and Platinum on 28 October 1991. In the 2001 remaster edition by EMI, an extra track “Hey You” (rare single), sung by Rudolf Schenker is included (although Klaus Meine sings the chorus). The song was originally recorded during the Lovedrive sessions in 1978 and released two years later as side-A (together with “The Zoo” as side-B). A shorter remix from 1989 was used on the 2001 and 2015 reissues instead of the longer original single version. “Lady Starlight” is the only song in the entire Scorpions discography so far (as of 2018) to include an arrangement for strings and orchestral winds. Here are all of Animal Magnetism’s songs ranked.

9. Hold Me Tight

“A slow, churning guitar, drums, then bass opening. Klaus sings great on this one! I love his voice. Instantly recognizable. A bluesy feel to this song.”

8. Twentieth Century Man

“A mid-tempo song with great lyrics by Klaus. I really like this song. Not your typical ‘I want sex, give it to me now’ song. “The world’s devoted to the Dollar-sign.” Not much has changed since then Klaus.”

7. Falling in Love

“This song recevied substantial air play during the early ’80s. A simple guitar intro gives way to a drum and bass pounding tempo. Some great guitar work on display. Klaus hits some of his highest notes on this song. A fantastic metal song, a true classic! Nearly perfect. Herman Rarebell wrote some of the greatest songs in the Scorpions catalogue, this is one of them!”

6. Only a Man

“A Queen like opening of only Klaus singing without accompianment leads into one of the finest hardock songs done by the Scorpions. A surging guitar and bass tempo with Klaus singing “Now you now how I feel. Nothing is real.” As usual, you get great guitar solos. Classic song”

5. Don’t Make No Promises (Your Body Can’t Keep)

“Starts out fast and furious and changes tempo when the lyrics start to a surging beat. A song about lust. Some terrific bass playing from Francis and as always great guitar solos. A terrific song. A classic metal tune.”

4. Lady Starlight

“The ballad of the album. Klaus sure can sing these. What emotion and conviction he sings with! Who better to sing a ballad than Klaus? A song of longing and love with a fine string section accompianing Klaus. A terrific guitar solo from Rudolf”

3. Animal Magnetism

“A hypnotic guitar and drum opening – sort of like “Kashmire” by Led Zep. Great singing by Klaus and guitar playing by the solo twins turns another inane song about sex into a fantastic hard rock tune. Only the Scorpions could have a whole album devoted to sex and make it a classic!”

2. Make It Real

“A guitar rif opening which gives way to a chugging tempo. Some fine bass work from Francis and great guitar exchanges from Mathias and Rudolf. Tempo could almost be considered ballad style and Journey could do no better. A great postive tune about striving for your dreams! Lets hope its still in the live set.”

1. The Zoo

“This song also received alot of airplay during its time. A great guitar intro followed by drums which turn into a real slow, surging elephant pounding tempo. Heavy bass from Francis. A bluesy type song. More explosive guitar solos from the menacing axe duo of Rudolf and Mathias. The Peter Frampton “voice air-guitar” that was real popular in the 70’s is also heard on this song. A great hard rock song about sex”
